Discovery Channel has journeyed Down Under with the latest installments of Dirty Jobs (Wednesdays at 10pm ET/PT), and now Animal Planet will be taking viewers to a less dirty world: the Great Barrier Reef. In a new two-hour special, Great Barrier Reef, airing on Sunday, September 9, you’re invited to explore the Earth’s largest living structure spanning more than 1,200 miles and visible from space.
As a scuba diver (who sadly had to skip out on an opportunity a year ago to dive the Reef), I’ll get my fix through this beautifully filmed exploration of what lies beneath the Coral Sea (3,000 reefs and 1,500 species of fish, marine mammals and amphibians, to be exact). From fluorescent coral to lethal jellyfish, the remote cameras and cutting-edge underwater macro- and digital time-lapse photography, Great Barrier Reef will be a feast for the eyes. Don’t miss it Sunday at 9pm ET/PT!
